Welcome to the Rave Reviews Book Club Book and Blog Party!
Today, I'll be giving away:
- $10 Amazon Gift Card - SUZANNE BURKE
- Paperback Copy of Raven's Peak - JOY NWOSU LO-BAMIJO
- E-Book Copy of Raven's Peak - Nicholas Rossis
Just leave a comment and you'll automatically be entered into the drawing! I live in Columbus, Ohio, so the paperback is going to be limited to the US, but the other two are for anyone and everyone!
This is my newest book, and it is the sequel to Raven's Peak which was my Kindle Scout selected novel from a couple of months ago! I'm expecting for this book to be out on September 20th!
Thank you all for coming, and I really hope you've been enjoying the Book and Blog Party tour! I'm thrilled to be a member of RRBC and really having a lot of fun interacting with everyone and learning from you all! If you want to signup to receive news and updates from me, please just use the form below! I'm always on the lookout for beta readers and giving away free stuff!
News and Updates
Raven's Peak was submitted to BookBub through Kindle Press in the UK, and it's going to be featured today in their newsletter! I've had some really good success with BookBub and running advertisements through their self-serve ad platform, but this will only be the second time I've been featured by them!
Self-Reported Statistics about finished campaigns!
Generating real traffic for your book and not worrying about nominations is the way to go.
During the campaign, you try to generate interest in your book. You get to see page views, hours spent in hot and trending, and where your outside views stack up against the views coming from kindle scout, as well as where your views are coming from (facebook, twitter, etc.)
Kindle Scout is Reader Powered Publishing. Basically, that means people vote for books (for free with an amazon account) and then Amazon publishes the most popular books.
Breakdown of selected KP books!
A few days ago they announced that Raven's Peak was shortlisted in the 2016 BookViral awards program! It's really exciting, and on November 1st they will announce which ones are finalists! Here's hoping I get some good news on that day!
This last weekend, Amazon ran a promotion of my Kindle Scout novel Raven's Peak. This is three days before the second book is set to launch, and the preorder is up, so it wouldn't have been any better timing for something like this.
I just received the IndieReader review back from them a few minutes ago, and they gave it a five-star rating! It is officially IndieReader approved.
